    Thanks for the ideas. I just switched out suspension on my DIY hammock and my WBBB to use a similar set-up. I used 1/4" clear vinyl tubing to sleeve the 7/64 amsteel where the whoopie slings loop through the eye of the webbing.

    I use a soft shackle (like Opie shows in his thread) made from 7/64 amsteel in lieu of the dutch clip. For my soft shackles I add a small loop of Zing It in the closed loop to help me open the closed end when its tightened.

    What are the plastic beads for on the whoopie slings?

    Its been relatively popular. I had some aprehension about flipping the sling around, but so far no complaints.

    So the adjustable loop doesnt inadvertently turn into a backsplice. i.e. get pulled into itself.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!
